I wish my children could believe in fairies forever. I adore watching their beautiful imaginations wonder about the fairy world and make up stories about what might happen there. It's one of those childhood treasures that really make you appreciate this innocent and wonderful age.
We made a few simple fairy doors with cardboard that I cut out into tiny door shapes. Emma painted them and added some special touches. Beads, buttons and twigs are great additions.
She wondered if her door would get used that night and what kind of fairy might use it.
She thought about all the perfect spots for a fairy door.
She asked to leave something special at each door that evening to encourage some fairy friends to move in.
And sure enough the next morning we saw some evidence that we may have some new house guests.
